Completed the sale of my flat in Blackburn last April yet the purchaser is texting every few hours to say her conveyancer is waiting to hear from mine. What are the post completion sale formalities now that I have sold?
Post completion of your sale your conveyancer should send the transfer documentation and all supplemental paperwork to the buyer’s lawyers. Depending on the transaction, your solicitor must also evidence that the legal charge in favour of the lender has been discharged to the purchasers lawyers. There are no post completion formalities just for conveyancing in Blackburn.
When reviewing online forums for an affordable solicitor in Blackburn, many say that I must use a CQS assured solicitor. What is CQS?
The Law Society's Conveyancing Quality Scheme is the recognised quality mark for legal experts in home moving process, trusted by some of the UK's major mortgage companies. Four years ago the Conveyancing Quality Scheme was officially recognised by the Building Societies Association (BSA). CQS is not a scheme offered by the Society for Licensed Conveyancers. Blackburn is one of the numerous areas of the UK where there are CQS lawyers.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on two weeks back in what was supposed to be a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Blackburn is where the house is located. Is there any guidance you can give?
Flying freeholds in Blackburn are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Blackburn you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Blackburn may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.
